    Description

    George Bush and Barbara Bush Typed Letter Signed "George" and "Love/Bar," one page, 6.25" x 8.5". Houston, Texas, c. December 2001. With original 9.5" x 4" envelope with Bush Houston address on the back flap. Bush has penned "Sharon" on the front. Begins "Dear 10 of you, Dear" to which George Bush has penned "Sharon." In full, "First of all I can barely type this letter because excitement had built up so high about Camp David that I can't think of anything else. I write by computer because my hand shakes from excitement or is it age? Anyway - here is a little bill-paying 'chicken feed' (per Gampy Walker when he'd pass out a 25 cent piece). It comes with tons of love but also with great gratitude for the joy all 10 of you give to your mother (or mother-in-law) and to me. I hope 2002 is your happiest year ever; and that Christmas will be your Merriest! Devotedly." This letter was one of ten individually sent to their children, George, Jeb, Neil, Marvin, and Dorothy, and their spouses. Gampy Walker was the father of George's mother Dorothy, stockbroker George Herbert Walker (1875-1953). When George and Barbara Bush were in The White House, their children and grandchildren would visit them at Camp David at Christmastime. This was their son's first Christmas as President and George Bush was excited about returning to Camp David after eight years. 2002 was not Sharon's happiest year ever. Her husband Neil told her he wanted a divorce. They were separated in 2002 and divorced in 2003. Very fine condition. From the personal collection of Sharon Bush and accompanied by a signed Letter of Authenticity from her.
